HAPPY NEW YEAR! Last year, I had three goals, and I achieved two of them, which I’m PRETTY darn pleased about. (Although, IMO you can never read too many books). This year my goals are a little more specific. 1 // Get a Tattoo So, this is the goal that I didn’t get to in… Continue reading 2018 Goals
There’s not much else to say other than I have typed ‘THE END’. Here’s what that looked like: That’s my main goal done and dusted! I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo in April, and I LOVED the fact that you can mark hours rather than word counts–it helped me so much! NEXT GOAL: celebrate. With chocolate… Continue reading Stage 4: DRAFT COMPLETE!!
This month, I’ve decided to change things up a little with my April wrap up. I kind of want to wrap up my entire month–from reading to writing to everything in-between. Books before Looks: This month I read a grand total of: 11 books, which is 6 more then my goal. I read Lumberjanes, Vol.… Continue reading How you doing, April? | Wrap Up
This post is a little late this month, because I have been spending all of my spare time writing. I started it New Years Day. In January, I wrote half a book. In February, I stalled slightly. I was really happy with everything I’d written so far, but I couldn’t quite work out the ending.… Continue reading Stage 3: Draft 1.5 | Writing
In January, I wrote half a book. Which is a pretty big achievement, for me. I’m normally a slow, messy drafter, but this book just seems to be pouring out of me. I have a sort of plan RE how it’s all going to end (but that could change, at any time.) It’s a first draft… Continue reading Stage 2: Draft 1 | Writing
So, I’m writing a book. It’s not a book at the moment, it’s just a jumble of words on a page. But one day, it’s going to be a book. I really enjoy reading about other people’s writing process–what they do that’s the same/different from me, so I thought I’d journal my writing process. I’ve never… Continue reading Stage 1: Draft 1 | Writing
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope you had a great end of year celebration, and I hope you don’t have too much of a headache this morning. 2017 means a new start, new aims and goals, and here are mine for the year ahead: 1 // Write Bravely So, there’s this book I want to write,… Continue reading 2017 goals
1 // Ginger Reads Lainey Lainey’s videos are super informative and encouraging, and she has some great writing tip videos. I also LOVE her monthly writing vlogs–they are simultaneously completely relatable and inspirational, and I always seem to want to write after watching one. 2 // Kim Chance Kim has detailed videos on… Continue reading 5 Writing Youtubers You Should Be Watching!
I’m not good with change. I find it stressful and anxiety inducing and just, ARGHHH. I like my routine, my comfort zone–it calms me. Even teeny-tiny changes that shouldn’t have any effect on me whatsoever, sometimes induces a panic. I’ve been working on my change aversion recently, trying to look on change positively. Because here’s… Continue reading Change.
The title of this blog post is a lyric from a song in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, one of my favourite movies ever. The song is all about how mistakes, and failures and things-going-wrong are the building blocks for success. The sentiment in it speak SO much to me, and I play it on full… Continue reading From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success!
